Frequently Asked Questions about Car Accidents in Pittsburgh

How long do I have to file a car accident lawsuit in Pittsburgh?

Generally, you have two years from the date of a car accident to file a lawsuit to continue pursuing your claim for compensation from the driver or party at fault for the accident. If you don’t file a lawsuit until after the statute of limitations expires on your claim, you may run the risk of the court permanently dismissing your case, which will result in you losing the right to pursue compensation from the at-fault party.

Can I recover compensation I am partially to blame for the accident?

Potentially yes. Pennsylvania law follows a modified comparative negligence rule that states that you may pursue a claim for compensation after an accident so long as your share of fault for the accident is equal to or less than the party or parties you are seeking compensation from. However, if you do bear some fault for the car accident and your injuries, your compensation might be reduced in proportion to your share of fault for the accident.

What are my options for compensation if I was hit by an uninsured driver?

If you were injured in a car accident that was caused by a driver that doesn’t have the liability insurance required by Pennsylvania law, or whose insurance coverage is insufficient to fully compensate you for your losses, you may have the option to turn to your own insurance company for compensation. If you have uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage in your auto policy, your insurer can step into the shoes of the at-fault driver’s insurer to compensate you for your losses from the accident.
